Happy Birthday to Me

I don't post very often, but when I do, I do about bicycles. I wanted to put a shout out to those of you who are supporting my latest crazy bike thing. Last week, the day before my birthday, I pulled my back getting out of a car. Sigh, older but still not wiser. I'd like to blame the car, but honestly it was the over-training last week that did me in. I'm trying to stay on the mend so I can make good on the generous support of my family and friends for their birthday wishes and donations to Oakland Public Schools! Thanks everyone.

Also thanks to Jess for making my birthday so awesome. Interviewing me for StoryCorps, much foods, some drinks, and just a great long weekend of R&R.

Moving to the Blackbird

Come have a handsomely crafted cocktail with me as my work moves on to the Blackbird.

Have a Blackbird classic and personal fave, The Leather Bound Book. Rye, cinnamon syrup, old-fashioned bitters, with an absinthe rinse, served down with a lemon twist. Subtle cinnamon is balanced by bitters and given depth with an imperceptible hint of absinthe. Tastes even better than it sounds.
